As I’m sure you have all gathered, I firmly believe that people should voice their opinions and back their beliefs up with actions to match.
At present, I literally still have goosebumps from a short film that I just watched on YouTube. “KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice.”
I have shared this film on Facebook and Twitter, not just because I believe in this campaign but because I feel that this campaign should INSPIRE people to stand up and make a difference, because ONE person can make a difference.
This film made me think.
As South Africans we face our own challenges such as corruption, crime, etc. Take a second and ask yourself just how much and what you have done to take action and fight for what you believe in.
How much do you know about the Secrecy Bill? How much do you care? Do you know how it will affect EVERYBODY, not just journalists?
I encourage you to watch this short film and to share it. Make a difference.
